It’s apple season and the grocery stores are overflowing with delicious, sweet apples. There are so many good treats you can make with apples.. I’ve been making my own applesauce lately and it’s so easy to make.

Applesauce or apple puree is an ingredient in many recipes and can be used to replace eggs, oil and fat in baking. I use it in cookies, muffins, bread, pancakes etc. You can now buy it in a lot of grocery stores, however it’s really simple (and tastes much better) when you make it yourself.

Ingredients:

4 Apples
3/4 cup water
juice of 1/2 lemon
1 tsp cinnamon, optional

Instructions:

1. Peel, core and chop up the apples.
2. Add apples, water, lemon juice and cinnamon in a saucepan and let it cook for about 15 minutes over medium heat. The apples are done when you can easily mash them with a fork.
3. Let it cool, and add to a blender and blend until its smooth.
4. Pour it  into a glass jar and store it in the fridge.
